Dean Gunston, general manager at the 5 Red Star Bovey Castle, said: "This is a unique opportunity to experience the hotel and learn more about the range of amenities and services we can offer. There's plenty to see at Bovey and we're excited to invite local residents along for what should be a great day out for family and friends, or people who want to find out more about creating the perfect event in a unique location."
